KALE, no more

Look what I woke up to
this morning .......
my kale, no more!
(click on photo for larger look)

Yesterday morning when I got up
the far left plant had been eaten, but
the rest were fine.   We thought 
maybe the deer came up and nibbled 
on it so last night we put some
chairs, etc to block entrance into
the courtyard...........
Well I can't imagine they jumped
over (I know they can, but it is a
fairly small area) so now we
don't know what to think !
There was a little possum out
and about last night, but I 
don't know if he or she would
have eaten it?
It is a puzzlement !
And they were such lovely
larger leaves I was just getting
ready to use.   Little darlings, 
whoever they are!

 I have in mind what it will
 be (jewelry :o).
All you have to do is become
 a follower and make a
 comment to be entered. 
 Just remember to comment 
so I can put your name in the
 hat (or bowl).  Also I'll let you 
know how to get 2 extra
 entries in my next post.  :o)

I love this photo!
   A woman standing in front
 of her sweet peas.
  Can you imagine wearing this
 dress on a hot summer day?
 It is probably late spring or
 early summer since sweet peas
 don't like hot weather.
 The high collar and dark colors.
  I wonder what color her dress was?

It's National Honey Bee Day !


Let's do all we can to save the little darlings.

I LOVE BEES and hope you do too.

They do so much to enrich our lives,

including feed us luscious food!

This photo was taken a couple of

years ago in blossoms

and bee.   One of my favorite shots.
